November 15, 2023
Time:
8:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

This presentation engages with a communicative approach to delve into the interpretability of AI-driven tools for health. The objective is to illustrate a work in progress of using a proposed Box of Questions for Communicating AI4H to achieve end-users-oriented, intelligible explanations. Overall, the presentation will reflect on how embracing a communicative strategy when incorporating AI-driven tools in health and biomedical research can augment transparency as an attribute of the innovation and adoption processes. Ultimately, it underscores how diverse strategies for achieving comprehensible communication can form an integral part of the adoption processes for building trust in AI-driven technologies for health.
